Enclosure 8 offers not only a chance to see higher quality versions of previously-available material, but it also includes a 2006 choreographed version of Castor & Pollux, performed by PARTCH
The real fun begins, however, with “U. S. Highball,” which, along with “Barstow,” is a “hobo” composition. The film alternates between the ensemble performing the composition and footage of the sorts of freight trains and railroad yards around which hobo life and transportation were based. I have now seen this film several times and have no qualms about saying how exhilarating I find each viewing.

It’s some of the best introductory material… Anyone interested in the American avant-garde will appreciate this.
